    Fluorapophyllite Dark Green Doubly Terminated
    Pune District, Maharashtra, India

    "A 2.5 inch doubly terminated floater bow tie of sharp, dark green apophyllite with a few sharp bladed white stilbites growing on it. I have never seen its equal. Bought the specimen from Fashi [sic] Makki in Poona."
    - Rock H. Currier

    When the first of the striking, green Apophyllites hit the market, they caused an understandable uproar, since the coloration was S-O-O-O-O different. Even today, they bring premium prices for Indian minerals. Rock imported literally tons of zeolites from India, being one of the first dealers to do so. As a result, he KNEW what a 'good one' looked like. That's why this one ended up in his personal collection.
